Program Information

First Step Childcare knows that a child’s first experiences will have a great impact on their physical, social, intellectual and emotional development. At First Step Child Care, we recognize that ever child is an individual with unique needs and desires.

Our program aims to benefit both the child and the family. Parent input into the program is encouraged and appreciated. Parent engagement enables the program to grow and evolve to meet the needs of an ever-changing community and culture here in Jackson County.

Your child will receive top-notch nutrition and well-rounded enrichment activities. We encourage parent enthusiasm and interest in the education, as well as social and emotional development of children of our program. We look forward to making First Step Child Care a positive experience for you and your child as we cultivate a desire to learn and grow in each child.

We also offer a summer camp. Our summer camp, Summer Funsation, is an 8-week, full-day program inspiring children to learn, explore, grow, and build lasting fun memories. The program centers on summer camp themes supplemented by field trips. Program eligibility is for children ages 4 to 12. Program cost is $75/week, which includes 3 daily healthy meals.
